Helo maxx 8's

What do you guys think of them? I'm looking at the black ones. Will they pit from salt like chrome will?

I don't like the look of the maxx8's.I like the maxx6's but of course we have to run the 8's.Eventually The salt will work its way under the paint and corrode it.Depends really how long it will take.Alluminum doesn't rust but it does oxidize.They will hold up better then chrome over alluminum though.
